As such, the complex, multi-part works contrast our culture&rsquo;s rampant media consumption with the redemptive nuance of slow work wrought by hand. Individual works range from delicate illusions to layered constructions to architectural interventions. Using a variety of materials that range from oil and acrylic paint, yarn, vintage clothing, aluminum screens, wool, silk, plastic, thread, vinyl, burlap, rug-hold, glass, recycled objects, and found fabrics, the artists interweave sensory pleasure with repetitive process to invoke introspection and reflection.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Funding for <em>FABRICation</em> was made possible in part by Virginia Commonwealth University, VCUarts, and the Painting and Printmaking Department.</p> Tue, 03 May 2016 17:24:40 +0000 Mike Disfarmer - University of New Mexico Art Museum Center for the Arts (Main Campus) - March 25th - June 16th <p style="text-align: justify;">Can the traces of time be written on an object? As portraits change hands from photographer to client, from loved one to loved one, from family to gallery, what does this mean for the thing itself? Remnants: Photographs from the Disfarmer Studio looks at the material history of portraits from the Arkansas studio of Mike Disfarmer. This exhibition traces the physical life of photographs from the darkroom to the family album, to the museum archive. Each Disfarmer photograph has a long and storied personal life, far beyond the photographer&rsquo;s posthumous fame.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Tue, 03 May 2016 17:21:59 +0000 Cris Pulos, William Davis, Terry Thompson, Steve Immel - Wilder Nightingale Fine Art - May 28th - July 4th Tue, 03 May 2016 17:07:09 +0000 Terry Allen, Wangechi Mutu, Luis Camnitzer - SITE Santa Fe - March 19th - May 22nd <div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Terry Allen<br /> </strong><strong style="line-height: 1.5;">THEN:</strong> In 2010 Terry Allen participated in the group exhibition <em style="line-height: 1.5;">One on One</em> with &nbsp;drawings and video sculptures inspired by the life of Antonin Artaud.&nbsp; His work was also&nbsp;featured in the 2013 traveling exhibition <em style="line-height: 1.5;">State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970&nbsp;</em>curated by Karen Moss and Connie Lewellen.<br /> <strong>NOW:</strong> Allen will present a new immersive narrative video and sound installation entitled&nbsp;<em>Memwars</em>.
